7:00 am
. . in the west, it is thursday, october 11th, 2012. welcome to "cbs this morning." the vice presidential debate is tonight and a cbs news poll shows more swing state voters are moving toorlds mitt romney. we'll ask strategist david axelrod how to stop the move. a scathing report shows lance armstrong took part in the biggest doping incident in history. we begin with today's eye opener, your world in 90 seconds. >> i know how you'll come and attack us. the problem he has is he has barack obama's record he has to run on. >> the vice presidential candidates set to take center stage. >> joe biden and paul ryan go head to head in their first and
7:01 am
only debate. >> biden under pressure to reverse governor romney's momentum. >> if you have a bad game, move on. you look forward to the next one. the difference between this and sports is that the stakes are so high. >> there was a garage collapse here at the miami dade west area. >> rescuers pulled one person out 13 hours after. >> i heard a pop, pop, pop, pop, dominos straight down. >> republican lawmakers pounced on the obama administration over last month's embassy attack in libya. >> we had the correct number of people in ben za gi. >> to start off by saying you had the correct number and our ambassador and three other individuals are dead somehow doesn't seem to ring true to the american people. >> the u.s. anti-doping agency said armstrong was at the center of the most sophisticated doping program ever seen. >> a black bear had a school scrambling. >> we got that going. we still learned something
7:02 am
today. >> for the oakland a's they'll live another day. >> did he do it again? he did! >> all that. >> 15-week old walrus about to make his debut in brooklyn. >> great, another brooklyn hipster with a ridiculous moustache. >> and all that matters. >> tickle me elmo. tickle me bill moyers. tickle everybody. >> on "cbs this morning." >> larry pushed me to be great and i hope i pushed him to be great. >> i guess the real message tonight for magic johnson is >> i guess the real message tonight for magic johnson is find somebody to hate. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." i'm charlie rose in los angeles. norah o'donnell is in new york. new poles show the race between president obama and governor mitt romney is getting tighter. a new quinnipiac "new york times" poll of likely voters in three crucial swing states has
7:03 am
come out. >> in that poll romney had a mild lead. it was the president who led by a point. in wisconsin mr. obama's lead is three points. he had been up six in that state. however, in virginia the president has increased his lead to five points. that's up one from the previous poll. and tonight the focus will be on the vice presidential candidates as they face off in their only debate. jan crawford is at the debate site in danville, kentucky. jan, good morning. >> good morning, nora. romney is really gaining ground in our polls because of his debate performance last week. now the pressure is on biden to try to stop some of that momentum or at least to change the subject. appearing positive but all business, paul ryan arrived late wednesday in kentucky to crowds of well wishers. earlier in the day ryan took a break from practice sessions for ice cream and talked up the vice president's experience. >> it's a nervous situation because joe biden's one of the
7:04 am
most experienced debaters we have in modern politics but the achilles heel he has is president obama's record. >> reporter: ryan did most of his preparation hold up in rural virginia with lawyer and former solicitor general ted olson standing in as biden. one challenge for the 42-year-old congressman is a generation gap. he's going head to head with a seasoned debate veteran 27 years his senior. but biden, with 17 national debates under his belt, is under pressure tonight to deliver, especially after the president's weak debate performance. >> 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 million people, you know? all debates are tough. i'm looking forward to it, i really am. >> reporter: biden's been out of site working in a delaware hotel working with david axelrod and acting as ryan, congressman chris van holland. hes been fueling up on gatorade and animal crackers and trying to better understand ryan's thinking by reading his book
7:05 am
"young guns." >> can i call you joe? >> you sure can. >> reporter: four years ago biden's challenge was not to appear overly aggressive with sarah palin. this time around democrats want him to do the opposite, come out swinging but with a concise message. former michigan senator jennifer played the role of palin. >> the big challenge for someone like joe biden, he is a so glib and so good at listening to people is delivering a message inside of a structured format. >> reporter: now with all the attention as these two men take the stage, there's one interesting thing. gallup's been doing some polling over the years. since 1976 eight vice presidential debates these guys performance's sarah palin's of course, too, did not have any impact on how people voted in the ballot box. so i guess that doesn't stop the pressure though, charlie. >> jan crawford, thank you. with us now, david axelrod, senior strategist for the obama
7:06 am
campaign. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> the president said the stakes are high in all of these debates and you were part of the team helping prepare vice president biden. how is his preparation different than the preparation for the president? >> well, i mean, obviously he's debating a different person. they're debating the same issues, the same vision but, you know, you have to prepare for the person you're debating. but in any case, it's a great opportunity again to drive the distinctions between the two candidates and talk about distinct approaches to the future. you know, right now the romney campaign is running away from some of their positions like unwanted stepchildren, but we're going to hold them to them and explain to the country exactly what the differences are here because the choice is very stark. >> will he be more aggressive than he has been with, say, sarah palin and in other debates because there's a feeling within
7:07 am
the campaign that there is a momentum for the president -- i mean for governor romney and this debate may play a role in stopping it if you're successful? >> well, i think that the big challenge for him is going to be to pin congressman ryan down. he was on television a couple of weeks ago and he was asked to explain governor romney's tax plan. he said, i don't have enough time to explain it. it's too complicated. he's got 90 minutes tonight so hopefully he'll have enough time to explain it and explain how they're not going to explode the deficits and put a big new burden on the middle class. >> we see a number of battleground stake polls out this morning including those by cbs news and "the new york times" that show a tightening of the contest in several of these states. can joe biden tonight stop the slide in the polls for president obama? >> well, nora, i don't think there's a slide in the polls. i think there was a bump after the debate. i think it was mostly last weekend. as you know, these polls that you conducted don't measure the
7:08 am
days since the debate, they measure what happened from before the debate to after. so i don't think there's big momentum. there's no doubt that governor romney collected a couple of points, mostly of republican leaning independents as a result of the last debate. what i think the vice president can do is really drive home the fact that one candidate, the president, has a vision that has squarely in it the interest of the middle class and the notion that you build the economy through the middle class and through a strong middle class and the other side has the same trickle down theory that congressman ryan voted for all through the last decade, big tax breaks for the wealthy, deregulate wall street, let them write their own rules and hope for the best. we know how that story ends. >> paul ryan says he expects joe biden to come at him like a cannonball. is that the strategy? >> i think if he thinks that he's going to hold him to the facts, if he thinks that he's going to hold him to account for
7:09 am
the positions that governor romney has taken in this campaign, their collective records, their approach to issues, well then maybe so but, you know, harry truman said i don't give them hell, i just tell it like it is, and they feel like they're in hell. so, you know, maybe congressman ryan's feeling the pressure of their own positions. >> david, the consequences of what happened and the death of the ambassador in libya has caused some scrutiny of those incidents and the security there and people are writing in editorials this morning that perhaps there was some pressure on ambassador rice to say what she said. "the wall street journal" points it out. what was the response of the president to these questions and charges? >> well, first of all, that's absolute nonsense. ambassador rice went out and she reported what she was told and what the intelligence community initially reported.
7:10 am
as we got facts we reported them. no one has any greater interest than the president to get to the bottom of this. he feels a sense of responsibility for every diplomat we sent overseas and so of course we want to get to the bottom of it and we want to bring to justice those people who are responsible for the assassination of this ambassador and that's what we're going to do. >> david axelrod, thank you. scott pelley, anchor of cbs news coverage of tonight's vice presidential debate. it begins at 9:00 p.m. eastern time, 6:00 p.m. here in the west. now to the middle east where a security official at the u.s. embassy in yemen was killed this morning. reports say he was shot in the capitol sana'a on his way to work. the gunman rode by on one motorcycle and fled the scene. the security chief was from yemen but had been working at the u.s. embassy for 20 years. meanwhile, it's been one month since an attack in benghazi, libya, killed ambassador chris
7:11 am
stevens and three other americans. the house oversight committee held a public hearing wednesday looking at security measures before the assault. margaret brennan is in washington. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, nora. state officials defended their decision not to send additional security to the u.s. consulate and faced tough questions from congress and the family members of those who died. those questions hang over hillary clinton's final months as secretary of state. >> reporter: top state department officials were on the defensive wednesday. the brutal assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi became fodder for a verbal firefight on capital hill. >> i'm going to tell you, this thing smells. >> reporter: members of the house top investigative body accused the agency of denying necessary protection for diplomats. even the department's former security chief in libya, eric nordstrom, claimed that washington rejected requests for help. >> it was abundantly clear we
7:12 am
were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident. >> reporter: diplomatic security secretary charlene lamb countered that assertion. >> sir, we had the correct number of assets in benghazi at the time of 9/11 for what had been agreed upon. >> to start off by saying you had the correct number and our ambassador and three other individuals are dead and people are in the hospital recovering because it only took moments to breach that facility somehow doesn't seem to ring true to the american people. >> reporter: patrick kennedy, the highest ranking state department official to testify, told congress that the agency did its best to reduce risk but it couldn't prevent it. the administration now says the attack was an act of terrorism, not the result of the spontaneous protests it first claimed. that reversal drew scrutiny. >> sir, it begs the question, what happened, was it a result
7:13 am
of political pressure? >> on my honor, no, none. >> reporter: investigators are still sorting through the paper trail. the account may continue to change. late wednesday the criticism got personal. the mother of one of the americans killed, sean smith, says she is still searching for answers about how her only son died. >> i have a right to know something, something other than, oh, we're checking up on it. >> reporter: a senior official tells cbs it was worth the risk to have a u.s. presence in benghazi as libya's new government took shape. now they're reviewing whether any americans should be stationed there. charlie? >> margaret brenner, thank you. rescue crews in miami are hunting for one last missing man after a parking garage collapsed on wednesday. 30 construction workers were inside at the time. a worker who was rescued overnight died this morning. that raises the confirmed death
7:14 am
toll to three. we're at miami dade community college. >> good morning and good morning to our viewers in the west. people heard and felt what seemed like an earthquake but instead it was this parking garage, a portion, a large portion had come crashing down without warning. >> reporter: the five story complex collapsed just before noon into a pile of rubble. >> all of a sudden i heard pop, pop, pop, pop, i saw come to any knows straight down. >> reporter: at least ten workers were injured. one man was trapped inside his car pinned under tons of concrete. rescue workers, along with a trauma surgeon, removed the man by amputating both of his legs. after more than 13 hours. >> he was transported currently to the local trauma hospital in extremely critical condition. >> reporter: 30 workers were spread across the five levels when the accident happened. hundreds of first responders
7:15 am
scoured the site looking for survivors and pulling them from the wreckage. >> let's get him to 35. >> reporter: search dogs also climbed through that fallen garage which fell pancake style to the ground floor. as the day wore on family members of the missing waited for some word. >> i'm praying that they find my husband because i need him. >> reporter: but by early morning hope faded. >> the likelihood of people surviving this type of collapse is slim to none. >> reporter: later it was announced that the mission had turned from rescue to recovery. >> we never want to give up. we never want to end the search, but at this time we are moving forward with a recovery operation. >> reporter: meanwhile, the construction company behind this complex has sent representatives to miami. they will investigate exactly what went wrong. nora? >> thank you. the united states anti-doping agency has put out a 202 page report showing exactly how lance armstrong cheated for
7:16 am
years. the blistering report accuses the cycling star of using performance enhancing drugs and giving them to other riders. armand has covered the story since it began. good morning. >> good morning, nora. few athletes in the world of sport have climbed and conquered more mountains than lance armstrong. a record seven time winner of the tour de france, inspirational cancer survivor, global icon. it has been stained by a damning new report detailing systematic doping by armstrong and his teammates. >> reporter: the report released yesterday by the u.s. anti-doping agency known as usada charges armstrong and his u.s. postal service team engaged in a systematic, sustained, highly professional doping conspiracy. usada backed its charges with more than 1,000 pages of evidence including financial payments, e-mails, scientific data and laboratory tests. plus, sworn testimony from ten postal riders who say they had
7:17 am
knowledge of armstrong's doping or doping by the team. tyler hamilton described in vivid detail how he and armstrong got blood transfusionness a hotel room during the 2000 tour de france. in his affidavit he stated, we lay on the bed and shivered while the chilly blood reentered our bodies. >> this is the first time we've seen something this well organized, this sophisticated that was all designed to essentially cheat sport and win at the highest levels. >> reporter: without question the most damning testimony was provided by george hincappy, a long time armstrong lieutenant and the only rider at armstrong's side for all seven of his tour wins. hincappy testified that both he and armstrong were on a blood doping program from 2001 to 2005 and that he was aware armstrong was using the banned blood boosting drug epo, testosterone, and blood transfusions to gain a competitive edge. hincappy also accused armstrong
7:18 am
of dropping out of a 2000 race in spain simply to avoid drug testing officials. in a statement hincappy said it is extremely difficult to acknowledge that during a part of my career i used banned substances given the widespread use of performance enhancing drugs by cyclists at the trop of the profession. it was not possible to compete at the highest level without them. in august usada based upon its investigation threw out all of armstrong's seven tour

gayle king and charles rose is in los angeles. vice presidential debates usually don't mean that much, but tonight's debate between vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan has become a high-stakes affair, as the presidential race gets tighter. this just-released quinnipiac university/cbs news/"the new york times" poll of likely voters shows romney now leads president obama by one point in colorado. romney was one point behind in september. and in wisconsin, the president leads by three points after leading by six points last month. >> cbs news political director john dickerson is in dayton, ohio, with a look at the importance of tonight's debate. john, good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, charlie. >> what are you looking for tonight? >> reporter: well, what i'm looking for is something from either candidate that reinforces the main, underlying story lines for both candidates. so, for joe biden, does he reinforce this idea that the white house is kind of tired and out of ideas? that's what the romney campaign has been pushing.
8:03 am
for ryan, does he underline this idea that the ticket is basically hiding their true beliefs and their true numbers? if either one of those does that, then it carries on the story line. otherwise, it's just sort of fodder for a couple of days, but it just essentially disappears. >> john, there's a generation gap between the vice president and the congressman. how do you think that will affect the tone of the debate, if at all? >> reporter: well, it will be an interesting thing to watch. you can imagine it affecting the tone in terms of remember when geraldine ferraro debated george bush, there was a gender gap in that case, and she snapped back at him when he seemed to be patronizing on the question of foreign policy. there could be a situation here where joe biden could look sort of a little, you know, look, sunny, and that would end up being kind of a gaffe. but i think other than that, younger voters are with president obama, and so it's not likely to have a big electoral impact. >> john, if you go inside our
8:04 am
cbs news/"the new york times" poll today, we see that mitt romney has a lead in three battleground states over president obama on the question of being a strong leader. how worrisome is that for the obama campaign? >> reporter: that's a problem, because the question here for people who are undecided is who's going to take control of these problems and fix them? and that's what mitt romney showed -- or that's what they liked about him in that last debate, and that's really what being a president is all about. and mitt romney has very strong numbers on that question. the president's numbers are a little weak. and that's really a central question for this election. >> john, do you expect him to attack more of what ryan has said in his budget or more of the democrats attacking what governor romney said in the first debate? >> reporter: i think so. i think there's going to be an effort to try and pin ryan down, both to what he believes, also to what romney believes. there's a theme there that biden can work, which is the
8:05 am
differences between the two. ryan has been quite specific in his career, the details of his specificity in the past are different from what romney believes now. if biden can exploit that and make it look like they're kind of fuzzing the numbers up and making it up as they go along and hiding their true intentions, that's really what the obama people are praying for in terms of a good outcome from this debate. >> john dickerson, thank you.
